NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeals

What are some of the reasons a candidate can be psychologically (psych) disqualified for the NYPD police officer title or other civil service titles?

If a candidate had an IEP (Individual Education Plan) in school, some of the NYPD psychologists see this as a reason to disqualify a candidate. The NYPD psychologist will ask you to sign an authorization to get your school records. When the records are received they will review them and determine if the issues you had in school will effect your candidacy.

Another reason for a NYPD psychological disqualification is if you took ADHD medicine while in school. Again the NYPD psychologist will request an authorization to obtain your records from school and review them to determine if you should be disqualified on that basis.

Even attending “resource room” services in school could be a factor.

As always the NYPD psychologists decision is not final.

You can appeal by getting an independent psychologist to assist you and by explaining that what happened in school is not your current condition or state. Often candidates have outgrown the need for medicines or their condition has not followed them into adulthood.

As always if you do not take action the disqualification will become final and effect your ability to get other civil service jobs.

If you would like to discuss these issues or if you have received a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or Notice of Disqualification please call me.

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates win their appeal. I can help you too.

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation, please feel free to call me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification-One Chance to Choose an Expert

I am a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer with more than 18 years of experience, and I have been assisting disqualified NYPD candidates appeal their Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) and/or Final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) from the NYPD.

On the Notice of Proposed Disqualification letter the candidate is given an opportunity to select an expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. If the disqualified candidate does not respond to the Notice of Proposed Disqualification the NYPD file will NOT be released.

It is crucial that the disqualified candidate select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process to assist them. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR CHOICE LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that you formerly had a counseling session with is not a wise choice.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification – Oral Psychological Interview Tips

The best tips for doing well on a NYPD Oral Psychological Interview:

  1.  Cooperate by arriving on time and dressing properly.
  2. Show respect for the psychologist by addressing them as “Doctor”, not Chief, Boss, Pal or Buddy, which will get you disqualified for showing disrespect during an interview.
  3. Realize that the interview can be aggressive and your answers will be challenged.  The psychologist may loop back and repeat prior questions to ensure you are being consistent in your answers.
  4. Be forthcoming because deceptive answers can be more damaging than revealing answers that you think may be problematic.
  5. At the end of interview you will be asked to provide authorizations for your school, medical and other records, and if those documents contain information contradicting your answers you can expect a bad result.

Please call if you have any questions about a NYPD psych disqualification.

Candidates are sometimes surprised by the thoroughness of the psychological exam, including the written and oral components. Additionally, candidates can be shocked to learn how thorough the psychologist will be when investigating the following: school; work; interpersonal relationships; family relationships; legal issues; financial issues; substance use or abuse; alcohol use or abuse and mental health history.

The psychologist will request documents from as far back as pediatrician records, which often makes candidates wonder if the request is proper. Additionally, early psychotherapy records from childhood trauma or a parent’s divorce will be requested.

Often psychologists who counseled candidates in childhood may have closed their practice, discontinued work, retired, passed on or destroyed the records. Nevertheless, candidates must show that they made every effort to obtain the records and prove that to the interviewing department psychologist.

If a psychologist receives records after the oral interview, the psychologist will review the records before making a final decision.

Attached is the international Association of Chiefs of Police Guidelines for Pre-Employment Psychological Evaluations. They are used by many Law Enforcement agencies.

Candidates should be aware that if there are any documents from their past that indicate some testing or illness, or issues regarding school discipline or expulsion, or work discipline or termination, these documents will be requested by the interviewing psychologist.

NYPD Oral Psychological Interview

Candidates for NYPD and Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies may not be aware that the oral psychological exam can be rough.  The examiner, most often a Psychologist, can use an aggressive questioning pattern to find out if the candidate can handle confrontation.  Also the psychologist may repeat previously asked questions to see if they are are going to be met with consistent answers.

The candidate may think to themselves that it is unfair, and they are not being treated properly. The best attitude is to be prepared to be confronted during the interview and maintain your composure.
